• We’re built for learning. Designed by experts, Uptime has a science-based methodology that’s proven to foster long-term information retention.

• We help you take action. We don’t just leave you to consume facts. Our Insights in Action provide you with tips and tricks that you can implement in your everyday life.

• Uptime helps you reach your goals. Watch your streak go up and see how many hours you’ve saved — a book might take hours, but a Hack only needs 5 minutes.

• You can bank the best bits for later. Save your favorite quotes, insights, and actions as Sparks to refer back to, and even categorize them into Boards to share with your friends.

• Our content is one of a kind. Many of our Hacks are written by the creators themselves, not only guaranteeing authenticity but offering unique insight you can’t get anywhere else.

• We guarantee quality. We curate only the top creators – with New York Times best sellers, the latest Netflix documentaries, top-rated Apple and Spotify podcasts, and courses from the world’s most prestigious universities.
